Reign­ing Bri­tish GT cham­pion squad Academy Motorsport will re­join the GT4 grid for the mid­sea­son cham­pi­onship races at Sil­ver­stone and Spa.

The Per­shore-based out­fit, which scored the GT4 class teams’ ti­tle last sea­son, will field a sin­gle As­ton Martin Van­tage GT4 for Swedish racer Den­nis Strand­berg who com­peted along­side Will Moore in one of the team’s two Van­tages last term.

The GT4 grid will ex­pand for both the Sil­ver­stone and Spa events with the Euro­pean GT4 Se­ries join­ing the field.

Team boss Matt Nicoll-jones, who is search­ing for a team-mate for Strand­berg, said: “With there look­ing to be up to 55 cars on track, we just had to en­ter to show what the team and the Van­tage can do in the right hands and have fun.”
